Stupid new movie, filling the year with TOS books on DS9's 20th anniversary.
Not making a serious complaint, so don't anybody jump down my throat *s*
I'm not sure it's entirely about the movie. I can't speak for the other authors, but I wrote a TOS book because, well, I prefer writing TOS books . . . .
There will be no movie next year or the year after, but I'm already brainstorming my next TOS book.
